All in the Family


Border Collie / Flat-Coated Retriever

Missy was adopted at the humane society. She was given up by her previous owners because they didn't have time for her anymore. She was 11 months old when I adopted her and she had no previous training. She ran off a lot, she was food aggressive, she wasn't at all obedient, she got into the garbage a lot and would always bite anyone who tried to stop her, she was out of control. I've had her for two and a half years now and she hasn't run off in awhile, she's doing a lot better with the food aggression, and she know several tricks. She can sit, shake, lie down, stand up, roll over, and right now I'm trying to teach her to spin. She is very smart and learns quickly. Two years ago, everyone was telling me to have her put down and I wasn't going to give up on her. Now, she is one of the best dogs I've ever had.

Probably next week I'm going to try to teach her how to turn a light switch on and off. She loves learning new tricks and I think this will be a fun challenge for us.

Aww! Missy is so adorably cute! She sounds like she has come a long way. You have turned a trouble dog into a perfect pet. That is amazing, and she must trust you completley. Bless you for adopting this beautiful girl, and giving her a loving home, and a chance at life!

Missy is lovely! I can see how she might like to run being a Border Collier/Retriever cross. Good for you for staying with it and loving her as you do. She really is beautiful. Hugs from Oliver and his Mummy in London, Ontario

I love Missy's bio! That is great that you took the time to train her into a family dog. I also think, YOU are like a model owner, for not euthanizing her for how naughty she was!!! Now she seems like a perfect dog, and she is gorgeous! :) :) :) ♥ ♥
